Skippy Jon Jones

Front Cover
Penguin, Sep 15, 2003 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
Move over, Eloise and Olivia. Make room for SkippyjonJones, a Siamese kittenboy who can't resign himself to being an ordinary cat. Having a time-out in his room, he resorts to his imagination. Taking on the superhero persona of the great Spanish sword fighter Skippito, he has the adventure of his life, and readers are invited along. Zany, wild, and over-the-top, this utterly original book truly begs to be read aloud.

With the jiggly, effervescent outlines she used in I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie, the smudgy, tender expressiveness of The Grannyman, and a text worthy of a sitcom, Judith Byron Schachner has created a new cat character for all ages. ˇOlé!

Is a story about a Siamese cat who wishes he was a Chihuahua that takes the reader on adventures inside his imagination. Very silly adventure told in English with Spanish language throughout the story. The overall theme is courage and heroism. Best for kids Kindergarten through 3rd grade.
